Keto Tea Party: Blueberry Lemon Cake Squares


FRESH TAKE ON TEA TIME TREATS

A Tea Party just isn’t a tea party without cakes and this week is all about Tiny Tea Time Treats!

These bite-sized Blueberry Lemon Squares are my take on a traditional tea cake. They can be served warm with a slice of butter on top or prepared early. I like to plan ahead for parties, so I will make these the day before and store them in the fridge. If you want to get really fancy you can divide the batter into a mini bundt cake tin for a decorative finish!

However and whenever you prepare them, these fruity and zesty cakes are the perfect addition to you Keto Tea Party!

  1. Preheat the oven to 425°F. Prepare an 8-by-8-inch baking pan with cooking spray.

  2. Put the 4 pieces of butter in the baking pan and place the pan in the oven for 2 to 3 minutes to melt the butter. Remove from the oven before it browns or burns.

  5. Evenly spread the blueberries into the cake batter.

Keto Tea Party: Seaweed Square Pile Ups


FRESH TAKE ON TEA PARTY SANDWICHES

Besides the tea, the most memorable and Instagram worthy part of any Tea Party is the Tiny Sandwiches! They sure are cute, but they are definitely not Keto.

For a Keto Tea Party, I like to serve these Seaweed Square Pile ups. They are just as dainty as Cucumber Finger Sandwiches but without the carbs. And in my opinion, they are much more delicious. These little finger foods can be topped with whatever Keto Friendly toppings you like (cucumbers, crab, masago) and eaten just like a tiny taco.

Seaweed Square Pile Ups

INGREDIENTS:

  • 6 seaweed snack squares

  • 4 ounces smoked salmon

  • 1/2 avocado, pitted

  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce or coconut aminos

  • 1 tablespoon Everything Bagel Seasoning

DIRECTIONS:

  1. On a clean surface, lay out the seaweed snack squares in a single layer. Divide the salmon evenly between the seaweed squares.

  2. Using a fork, Mash the avocado and soy sauce/coconut aminos in a small bowl.

  3. Place a scoop of the avocado mash on each square.

  4. Sprinkle the everything bagel seasoning on top.

  5. Fold it up like a taco and enjoy.

You can add anything you like to the top of these squares. Get Creative. I like to think of this as sushi and top it with things like cucumbers and crab.
